________________________________

Coastguard volunteers save lives at sea, in our lakes, rivers, and waterways.

Lives depend on Coastguard’s volunteer crews and they need the right skills, training and equipment to bring boaties safely home.

Our volunteers can’t do it alone. They need your help to ensure they are ready in an emergency. Every gift counts, and a gift in your Will, big or small, will help future volunteers to continue saving lives – those of our children grandchildren and the generations of boaties to come.

If you do decide to include Coastguard in your Will, we’d love to welcome you as a Coastguardian and take the opportunity to thank you in your lifetime. If you are comfortable to do so, please let us know of your intention. This is not a binding commitment, and anything you share with Coastguard is private and confidential.

Franks story.

“I want my legacy to go towards a service that needs the funding and relies on volunteers who do a bloody good job. It is such a worthwhile cause.”

Frank has been boating his whole life. A sail-maker by trade, he reckons that he made over 35,000 yacht sails before he retired. He joined Coastguard in the early 1960s and remains a member to this day, even though he’s vastly experienced - with 25,000 ocean racing miles under his belt.

Frank understands the challenges that can arise at a moment’s notice when out at sea. “Knowing that Coastguard is there makes you feel better and gives you reassurance. It’s all about safety.”

You’ll find Frank cruising the ocean every summer with his wife. “It’s comforting to know that if things go wrong at sea you can call Coastguard and they’ll sort it out,” Frank says. To the volunteers who dedicate many hours of their personal time to be there for others who need help, Frank’s message is: “Good on you – you’re a terrific bunch who save lives at sea.”

Frank has left a gift to Coastguard in his Will. “I want my legacy to go towards a service that needs the funding and relies on volunteers who do a bloody good job. It is such a worthwhile cause.”

You don't need to be rich to leave a lifesaving legacy.

 

You can make a difference and save lives at sea by becoming a Coastguardian,

like Frank Warnock
